June 12, 2008 · Updated 3:36 PM
Brady Zurn rushed for 145 yards and a score while Leon La Deaux caught a touchdown pass to help lead the John Sedgwick Junior High varsity football team to a season-ending 16-6 win over Marcus Whitman on Wednesday night at Joe Knowles Field on the campus of South Kitsap High School.
Sedgwick finished its year at 5-2 behind a strong second-half performance led by its defense and the offensive play of Zurn and La Deaux.
After a scoreless first half, the Generals got things going early in the third quarter when Austin Seigel recovered a Marcus fumble. Sedgwick quarterback Casey Coulon found La Deaux for a 55-yard completion that led to a three-yard touchdown run by Zurn.
La Deaux made it 16-0 on a 47-yard run set up by another stand by the General defense.
Zurn ended the night with 145 yards on 17 carries while Coulon completed 4 of 8 passes for 88 yards, finding La Deaux twice for 74 yards while Scotty McGallian hauled in a pair for 14 yards.
Defensively, Siegel led the way by putting pressure on Marcus all night. Kyle Fenton, Kyle Littlewolf, Anthony Bishop, Keith Gray and Elias Hanson were key members of Sedgwick's stingy defense.
The Generals 5-2 mark was its second straight under coach Kevin Darcy.
Cedar ends year on frustrating note: Sean Allison rushed for 161 yards and scored on a 60-yard run but Cedar Heights fell to Bremerton 14-6 to close out its season Wednesday.
The Raindevils moved the ball well but couldnt get it in the end zone enough to close out the year with a win.
With the score tied 6-6 late in the fourth quarter, Bremerton managed to go up 14-6 and then sniffed out a halfback pass to end the game.
Cedar finished the year 3-4 after going 0-14 the past two years.
Coach Carey Krumsick said he is proud to see his team work its way back to being a competitive program after a two-year down spell.
The Cedar junior varsity concluded its season last week with a 30-0 win over Marcus Whitman, getting touchdowns from Zach Cruz, Kyle Sparber and Ray Chico.
The junior Raindevils finished the season with a 4-2 record with both losses coming by a combined eight points.
